A record crowd of more than 35,000 attended. Attendance was also up, to more than 1,300, at the car show (left) at the Whitchurch-Stouffville Museum in Vandorf Sunday. To see more photographs from both events, go to yorkregion.com and click on ‘Photo Galleries’. Next Thursday evening will be busy, too, with Hockey Night in Stouffville, Moonlight Madness, Information W-S, an opening at the Latcham Gallery and a chamber of commerce winery event on the calendar.

MPP Helena Jaczek speaks during the YOU 177 age friendly community announcement at the WhitchurchStouffville Public Library Tuesday. The cabinet minister gave $35,000 for a municipal aging study.

Seniors’ needs up for discussion BY SANDRA BOLAN

sbolan@yrmg.com

Bring generations together to create a strong community. That is the impetus behind WS YOU 177. On Tuesday, the organization received a $35,000 grant from the provincial government to study age-friendly community planning in WhitchurchStouffville. “It’s all about engaging everyone in this project because each of us deserves to live in a community where we feel at home, where we feel supported,” Helena Jaczek, MPP for Oak Ridges-Markham, told a group of about 40 people who gathered inside the Whitchurch-Stouffville Public Library to hear how the money will be spent. So far, 56 organizations and municipalities have been awarded money from the $1.5 million fund, according to Jaczek. “We want to know what seniors need in terms of services, structures and policies, as well as how young people feel about growing up in our community,” Brian Puppa, director of programs for WS YOU 177 told those gathered. He noted physical structures like roads, buildings and homes garner the most attention when it comes to communities, “but it’s the underlying psychosocial dynamics, the social infrastructure that makes the

community strong.” Parts of Whitchurch-Stouffville currently have one of the highest densities of people over the age of 65 in York Region, according to Puppa. He also noted, by next year and for the first time ever, there will be more Ontarians over the age of 65 than children under 14 and by 2036, 35 per cent of the Canadian population will be over the age of 55. Utilizing the World Health Organization’s eight dimensions for age-friendly communities — public buildings, housing, transportation, community support, civic participation, communication, social participation as well as social inclusion — WS YOU 177 will undertake a community-wide consultation process to better understand the needs of local seniors. In 10 months a report will be made available to the community and council with recommendations. “I see where they’re coming from … but it’s a little bit beyond the municipality. We can’t tell the municipality and developers what to do,” Mayor Justin Altmann told The Sun-Tribune. “It’s one thing to talk about it, but how are you going to implement it?” Altmann asked. Pat Ogston, president of the 55+ Club likes the idea of an intergenerational community, but admitted some of her club members are struggling with what WS YOU 177 is trying to do. “It’s a new idea for them and sometimes new things take baby steps to get going,” she told The Sun-Tribune.

The toboggan hill is coming back to Thicketwood Park, according to Mayor Justin Altmann. “It is the one thing that should have never been removed from the park,” Altmann told The Sun-Tribune. The idea came about after Altmann recently went for dinner on Main Street, then grabbed an ice cream and went for a walk through Memorial Park. He spoke with adults and children about what they liked and didn’t like in the park, with the overwhelming SUN-TRIBUNE FILE PHOTO sentiment being the toboggan hill Fun on the toboggan hill in Memohas to come back. Altmann then went to Facebook rial Park in 2007. with this: “How many people would like to see the toboggan hill returned and then the reports … not tellto Memorial Park?” ing people what they should or Within 48 hours, the post had shouldn’t have,” Altmann said of his more than 5,000 hits and it now sits process. at over 8,000, according to Altmann, Altmann plans on making a who added, all of the feedback has notice of motion on resurrecting been positive. the toboggan hill at the next coun“Yes and I don’t even have kids. cil meeting, which is scheduled for Memorial Park used to be filled with Aug. 25, 7 p.m. people in all seasons.

Stouffville so represented in field of candidates

Why did no one stop to help?

t was hard to recognize the dude, save for his election paraphernalia. The incumbent was ashen, slow of foot and speech and hunched over — an apparent victim of that fall’s lengthy municipal campaign trail. “Let me tell you, it’s a hell of lot harder running for a second time,” he said, looking like he’d gone 15 rounds with a young Mike Tyson. His voting record was questioned. Old promises revisited. Answers demanded. Kind of like Prime Minister Stephen Harper during last Thursday’s marathon of a leaders’ debate from Toronto. Like him and his politics or not, you’ve got to hand it to Harper for escaping relatively unscathed last week. Locally, candidates in the new riding of MarkhamStouffville are also out of the gate. And at least one all-candidates’ meeting is in the works. Interestingly, the slate of hopefuls includes only Stouffville residents. “We all run into each other in Tim Hortons” as NDP flag bearer Gregory Hines told The Sun-Tribune’s Sandra Bolan. Makes some sense. The new riding includes only 120,000 voters, compared to 320,000 in the old Oak RidgesMarkham riding. Burgeoning Whitchurch-Stouffville makes up about one third of the Markham-Stouffville constituency. Paul Calandra knows. He served the old riding the past two terms. Calandra’s done a lot, as he told Whitchurch-Stouffville council while dropping off another cheque the week the election was announced. He’s also earned points for tackling Stouffville-only issues, including the downtown cell tower and grain elevator and crime. And like any incumbent,

Off The Top with Jim Mason especially one tied to a party and its leader, he’s probably got more friends and foes than his competitors. (You can likely count York Region chair Wayne Emmerson in the latter list, following their feud that spewed out on Calandra’s Twitter account last year.) From a journalistic view, Calandra has offered, often quickly, the best quotes of the dozens of politicians we’ve dealt with in Stouffville since the 1980s. (Honourable mention to former MPP Frank Klees.) Calandra’s comment in last week’s paper about Hines and the NDP likely being his biggest competition is probably good bulletin board material at Jane Philpott’s campaign headquarters across Main St. from Stouffville’s clock tower. She’s the Liberal candidate, a family doctor in Stouffville and now Markham, well known for her Give A Day on World AIDS Day project and co-founding TEDxStouffville. Hines and Green Party candidate Myles O’Brien don’t have the resumes of their competitors, but they aren’t unknowns either. Election prediction? A long, and hopefully colourful campaign devoid of slung mud and heavy on issue-based debate. See you on the trail. Jim Mason is editor of The Sun-Tribune. Follow him on Twitter @stouffeditor

Navigating through land of pylons In York Region, it seems that if asphalt has been sitting idle for more than a couple months, some work must be done to it. Take Ninth Line, for example. Is it just me or was the new stretch of four lanes between Major Mackenzie and Main Street recently paved?

So many kilometres of pylons: social experiment in driver patience or marvel of construction efficiency? While questioning the timing, my thoughts wander as I drive. I felt compelled to share with you the short film that ran through my head. The setting is the construction trailer, it’s an early morning and the clip goes something like this. “OK, ladies and gents, today we’re gonna line as many orange and black pylons as possible from Main Street to Donald Cousens. Put them anywhere, just make sure those new double lanes are down to one lane in each direction.” “When you’re done there, and I expect that oughta take a couple days, we’re gonna go back up to Davis Drive. We’ve been dragging that one out for two and an half years and I’m speculating we’ve got about another year to go. Move the dirt around a bit and make sure you move the entrance to the hospital again before you go. No real reason, it’s just fun messing with those seniors when they get there and can’t find the same entrance they used last week.” “By then, we’re good to come back to Ninth Line. I want y’all to move those pylons again. Make it interesting, but again, only one lane

in each direction. It’s gotta look like something big’s about to happen and besides, it keeps those commuters on their toes. When we get the go ahead we’ll throw another coat of asphalt on and we’ll get new orders by Monday.” “So keep hydrated and for Pete’s sake, if you’re all gonna stand around, do it in groups of less than 3 and whatever ya do don’t lean on the shovels. I don’t need another phone call from the top because someone’s complained.” The cartoon ends and the credits roll and the next day, I am driving through a new maze of pylons. Once again, the channel of cones seems to wind forever, nothing is happening and I’m still not certain why. So many kilometres of pylons: social experiment in driver patience or marvel of construction efficiency?

Where has all the federal grant money gone? Re: Grants for park, seniors’ projects, July 30. Although we are grateful to MP Paul Calandra and the federal government for the $116,589 grant to fund the two projects in Whitchurch-Stouffville, I am baffled by the comment that, “since he was elected in 2008, more than $12 million in investments has come to Whitchurch-Stouffville.” Where is it? Show me! (Calandra’s office has confirmed the numbers) so our elected representatives for our town (as well as businesses and organizations) in the community have done a questionable job with the money.

Victoria Trajkovski of Stouffville was only five the first time she donated her hair. Now 11, she did it again, donating 10 inches of her locks to Angel Hair for Kids this summer. She wanted to help make wigs for the children who have lost their hair due to conditions such as cancer treatments, alopecia and burns. “I hope by donating my hair it puts a smile on a child’s face”, she said.

We'll be doing Cod and Chips on Friday and Saturday at the café, and you won't have to take the ferry over either. The fillets are at OFF the fresh fish counter for now. THIS WEEk Reg. $14.95/lb

Thomas Here... Serving anything but Fish and Chips for an East Coast Week would be downright sacrilege. We do this old school... hand-cut chips, twice fried, served with Atlantic Cod in a beer batter with a generous dollop of homemade tartar sauce on the side. Due to the labour involved, we’ll be doing this on FRIDAY AND SATURDAY OFF ONLY!

Moving on... we’ll be making a daily batch or two of my Smoked Atlantic Salmon. This is our 25th year of making this now-famous Warm-Smoked Salmon. ‘Warm-Smoked’ means that it is full-cooked as it smokes, so is flaky when you portion it. For the most part, this would be eaten as-is, probably with a mayo-mustard sauce, but it can be flaked OFF into a summer salad, or pasta. We’re proud of this THIS WEEk product! Reg: $5.99/100g

COLUMN

They put the bloom on downtown Stouffville

A

three-block bower of beauty. For both residents and visitors, Stouffville’s downtown, extending from Albert Street to Park Drive, is a positive conversation piece. Credit for this floral work of genius belongs to Maureen O’Halloran and Cassandra Cain, employees for the past eight years with the town’s department of leisure and community services. Kelsey Murray, a college student, is currently a summer assistant along with three university scholars. The department’s director is Rob Raycroft. The manager is Bruce Hatt. Maureen, 55, lives in Stouffville. Cassandra, 37, resides near Zephyr. Maureen is employed yearround. Cassandra, a mother of two, takes winters off. While the Main Street’s hanging baskets are most visible to shoppers and motorists, there’s more to this endeavour that meets the eye. Much more. Garden perennials at each of the community centres as well as Nineteen on the Park, the

Roaming Around with Jim Thomas Vandorf museum and the lawn -bowling club come under Cassandra’s care in addition to beauty spots beside the train station, the Lions’ gazebo and the Stouffville Leisure Centre. The baskets, filled with a variety of seven different annuals, are Maureen’s responsibility. They’re watered daily from a 300-gallon tank transported on the rear of a pick-up truck. Because the baskets are exposed to the wind, they dry out quickly, says Maureen. Under certain hot and humid conditions,

twice-daily watering wouldn’t be too much, she adds. Their work day begins at 5 a.m., and ends around 3 p.m. “We’re really pleased with the beds at the train station,” says Cassandra. “The colour combinations have prompted much favourable comment.” “For many people, a walk through the entire beautification area is an important part of their day,” adds Maureen. “It gives residents a sense of pride in their community.” Praise and hugs from passersby are not unusual, she says. Some joggers even request a personal shower she notes with a smile. “Or ask us to give their dogs a drink,” adds Cassandra. Maureen’s swift to praise the work of the entire department. “We’re the visible part,” she says, “but a lot goes on behind the scene that people don’t see.” For example, the 30-pound baskets are put up and taken down by employees Shawn Norton and Mark Maye. They and others also take care of tree-removals, treepruning, grass-cutting and a multitude of other jobs.

6 day Sidewalk sale August 14, 15, 16 and August 21, 22, 23

Weeks of planning go into the floral program beginning in the fall of the previous year, explains Maureen. Their supplier is Otter’s Greenhouses in Epsom, east of Uxbridge. The firm’s reputation has broadened to an extent they now serve a string of municipalities including Port Perry, Whitby, Fenelon Falls, Peterborough, Richmond Hill and Uxbridge. “Their product is excellent and their service is exceptional,” says Maureen. “When suggestions are accepted, seed for planting is immediately ordered. We have a wonderful working relationship.” The lone negative concern relates to vandalism. It’s not unusual, says Maureen, to appear on the job and find portions of basket flowers littering the street and sidewalks. “It’s not a good way to start the day,” she says. “We clean everything up right away.” She says they can’t understand why these defacements keep happening. “It’s disgusting,” she says. She’s hopeful that, in years to come, those responsible will look

back on their actions with feelings of remorse. In addition to basket waste, they also collect other refuse along their routes. These problems aside, both Maureen and Cassandra enjoy their daily duties. “Our work is very gratifying,” says Maureen, “we can see benefits from what we do.” “It’s all about making the town look good,” agrees Cassandra. “We’re passionate about our job.” Plans are already underway for the Christmas season and 2016. During off-times, they visit towns and hamlets like Unionville and Victoria Square for new ideas. “We like to be creative,” they say. To fully appreciate what Maureen, Cassandra and their assistants have accomplished, be sure and attend the downtown’s Moonlight Madness event next Thursday from 4 to 10 p.m. You’ll be glad you did and so will the merchants. Jim Thomas is a Stouffville resident who has written for area newspapers for more than 60 years.

30 PEOPLE WITH HEARING LOSS Qualified Participants Needed for Technology Field Test

During this Limited-Time event, we are looking for people like you, who may be experiencing varying levels of hearing loss to evaluate a remarkable new line of digital hearing aids and a rehabilitative process that could be the solution to your difficulties. Call us toll-free today at one of the numbers below to see if you qualify for this Field Test. Potential candidates will be given a FREE hearing test to determine candidacy. Participants will be given a FREE in-office demonstration, and the opportunity to evaluate the latest, most advanced hearing aid technology for 30 days at drastically reduced rates. A refund* is available at the end of the test period if you feel your test aids do not improve your hearing. A full range of sizes are available in this new technology, including the exceptionally disscreet and re t open-fit op IIC models shown here:

Uncle Sam’s won three of the four trophies given the ribbers. To see more photographs from the event, go to yorkregion.com and click on ‘Photo Galleries’.

Similar to choosing between contact lenses or glasses, you can decide with your hearing professional which hearing aid style would best suit you. Both styles have approximately the same performance and functions, but are fitted to the ear differently.

It’s almost a shame this technology isn’t more visible! Open-fit and Invisible-In-the-Canal (IIC) hearing aids are smaller and more beautiful than ever, striking the perfect balance between size and performance. The elegant and highly discreet open-fit hearing aid fits perfectly on top of your ear, and the thin tube in your ear canal is designed to disappear against your skin. The new IIC hearing aid--now with wireless technology--provides all of the outstanding features and benefits you want in a digital hearing aid, minus the stigma that came with wearing one in the past.

Study Initiation Notice COMMUNITY OF STOUFFVILLE PLACES OF WORSHIP REVIEW

Study Objectives: The Town of Whitchurch-Stouffville is undertaking a review of places of worship in the Community of Stouffville. The objectives of the review are: • To identify the particular issues applicable to these facilities in the Town, with specific regard to employment areas; and, • To determine the policies and regulations that will most appropriately respond to the interests of faith groups while minimizing land use concerns and conflicts. Background: On June 16, 2015, the Council of the Corporation of the Town of Whitchurch-Stouffville passed By-law No. 2015-098-ZO, being an interim control by-law. The By-law was enacted to prohibit the development of places of worship for a period of one (1) year on certain Employment Business Park lands within the Community of Stouffville, until the study is completed. Places of worship are major contributors to the well-being of the community and are important for the creation of a healthy and complete community. However, there are a number of general issues associated with the development of these important facilities related to their location in areas not designed to accommodate such uses (e.g. employment areas). For these reasons, it is considered appropriate to examine this issue in greater detail. Study Process: The Places of Worship Review is in its initial stages and you are invited to share your views. Though the focus of the study relates to the appropriateness of Places of Worship in Employment Areas, the study will also examine regulations and policies concerning their use in the Community of Stouffville. You may comment online by visiting the Town’s website, or submit your comments in writing to Ms. Paula Viola, Planner, at the address below. This input will be considered in the preparation of a background report which will be considered at a public information session early in 2016. Your input is important. If you wish more information concerning this study please visit the ‘Places of Worship Review’ website component at www.townofws.ca or for more details contact: Paula Viola, MCIP, RPP Planner | Development Services Department Town of Whitchurch-Stouffville, 111 Sandiford Drive, Stouffville, Ontario L4A 0Z8 905-640-1900 or 1-855-642-(TOWN) 8696 Ext. 2326 Fax: 905-640-7957 Email: paula.viola@townofws.ca

Oshawa man charged in hit and run

A 44-year-old Oshawa man is facing charges in connection with a hit-and-run incident just east of Stouffville in April that left a cyclist seriously injured. At about 10:30 a.m. on April 30, police were called to York Durham Line near Wagg Road, along the boundary of the Town of Whitchurch-Stouffville and the Township of Uxbridge, after a cyclist was struck by a vehicle. The cyclist, Sjaan Gerth, 33, a doctor at Toronto’s Harbourfront Medical Centre, was riding southbound when a black truck hit him

from behind and then fled the scene. George Maxwell, 44, of Oshawa, is charged with dangerous driving causing bodily harm, failure to remain, failure to report, driving while disqualified and driving while under suspension. He was held for a bail hearing. Gerth is recovering from his injuries at home. Anyone with information about the incident or who witnessed the collision is asked to call Durham Regional Police’s traffic services branch at 1-888-579-1520, ext. 5231. – Torstar News Service

Extradition request relaunched in abuse case Mark Viscomi was on his way out of prison after winning an Ontario Court of Appeal judgment at the end of June when he was re-arrested by authorities. And now a second extradition request has been launched by the federal Crown in regards to the Whitchurch-Stouffville native’s alleged crimes in relation to two teenagers in the United States. The 30-year-old has been in jail for three years after police say he blackmailed a 17-year-old Virginia Beach girl into abusing her 13-year-old sister over a webcam. It is alleged the medical student met the girl on Skype before telling her if she didn’t acquiesce to his demands, he would install a virus on her computer. The abuse was described by an Ontario judge as “sadistic” conduct that verged on “torture”. His appeal was successful after a judge said the Crown failed to prove it was him on the other end of the computer at the time of the alleged incident. He will be in court to face the new charges Sept. 8. – Jeremy Grimaldi

African choir kids sing for their schooling at EastRidge BY SANDRA BOLAN

sbolan@yrmg.com

Through song, African children receive an education they would not otherwise have. The African Children’s Choir is the oldest travelling children’s choir in the world, as far as choir manager Tina Sipp knows. They just celebrated their 30th anniversary and are currently on their TransCanada tour. The choir stops in Stouffville at EastRidge Evangelical Missionary Church, 12485 Tenth Line, Aug. 19. Show time is 7 p.m. Everyone is welcome.

Admission is by free-will offering. “We believe in these children and are unabashedly raising money for these children,” Sipp said. Children who are invited to join the choir are ages seven to 10 and come from the many programs the choir’s parent organization – Music for Life – supports in Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, Rwanda, South Africa, Sudan and Uganda. “These are all children who would not otherwise receive an education,” according to Sipp, who added choir members have their education paid for from elemen-

tary school to post-secondary. “The point is, they just need an opportunity. They have all the tools to be successful, they just need to be given an opportunity,” she said.

‘We believe in these children and are unabashedly raising money for these children.’ By investing in a child’s education, they invest in the future of Africa, according to Sipp.

WATER IS MOVING

The choir’s current tour started at the beginning of March in P.E.I .and will end mid-November on Vancouver Island. While touring, the children have to attend classes, led by adult teacher/chaperones, but they also get to do some sightseeing. Most recently they went to Niagara Falls. “They’re very much present in the day they’re experiencing,” Sipp said of the African culture. While the show will educate the audience on the struggles children face in Africa, there will also be a lot of high-energy traditional African

worship songs, along with some traditional spiritual and gospel favourites. The choir performed in EastRidge in November 2012. Josh and Tori Bissell, children of lead pastor Scott Bissell, each chaperoned recent choir tours. The African’s Children Choir has performed before presidents, heads of state and the Queen of England as well as alongside Paul McCartney, Annie Lennox, Keith Urban and Mariah Carey.

Our Water: An Epic Journey Where does our water come from and how does it get to our taps? The system that makes it happen is huge, hidden and fascinating. Here’s a glimpse of how it works. York Region provides drinking water to an estimated 1.1 million residents. More than 85 per cent of our water comes from Lake Ontario; the rest, from Lake Simcoe and groundwater. Before it reaches our taps, water is treated to make it safe to drink. Depending on where you live, drinking water might travel more than 80 kilometres to get to you. At the heart of our water distribution system are massive pumps, moving millions of litres of drinking water from treatment plants through watermains and large distribution pipes within the system. Through this vast underground network, water is driven upward over hills into special storage tanks and water towers. Water towers play a vital role in our drinking water system. They equalize pressure, provide large volumes of water for fire-fighting and provide an emergency supply if needed. Water towers hold up to 7,550 cubic metres of water, about as much as three Olympic-size swimming pools. From the lake – to a pumping station – to a water tower – to your taps, our water goes on an epic journey through a complex system that is rarely seen. We’ve taken videos that will open the door to our underground world. We think you’ll be amazed. Visit york.ca/wateris

Learn more about the hidden water system and the people who make it work. For more information, videos and stories, visit york.ca/wateris or call 1-888-967-5426

COMING UP

Singer revisiting Patsy Cline BY SANDRA BOLAN

sbolan@yrmg.com

Every female country singer loves to belt out a Patsy Cline tune. But not everyone can say the legendary singer helped kick-start their career. When Canadian country singer Lisa Brokop first started out, she didn’t have any original songs, so she sang Patsy Cline hits. Things have come full circle for Brokop who is currently touring The Patsy Cline Project. She stops in Stouffville at the Lebovic Centre for Arts and Entertainment – Nineteen on the Park, Sept. 10. Buoyed by multimedia imagery, Brokop will transport the audience back to the hey-day of country music with her renditions of Crazy, I Fall to Pieces and Walkin’ After Midnight. She will also perform some of her own hits. Brokop could sing before she could talk and at the age of seven, performed on stage with her mother and brother. By 12, she was sitting in with other Vancouver bands and at 15, Brokop turned professional. Brokop released her first independent solo album in 1991. She has release seven albums over the years and received two Canadian Country Music Awards (2001) for song of the year and independent female artist of the year. Cline was born Virginia Patterson Hensley in 1932 in Winchester, Virginia. She taught herself to play the piano around age eight and later discovered a love for singing. Cline started performing with band leader Bill Peers’ group in 1952. She landed a recording contract

Lisa Brokop brings The Patsy Cline Project to Nineteen on the Park in downtown Stouffville Sept. 10. in 1954, but her songs didn’t catch on, until she performed Walkin’ After Midnight on Arthur Godfrey’s Talent Scouts show. She won and went on to record a number of hit songs. She died in March 1963 in plane crash. Tickets are $38 each and available at www.nineteenonthepark.ca

Runners to tackle dementia Alzheimer’s is no longer an older person’s disease. People are now suffering from the degenerative brain destroying disease in their 50s. “Very, very sad,” said Janet Iwaszcsenko, executive director of Bloomington Cove Care Community. There is no cure, but Iwaszcsenko and her staff at the Ninth Line long-term care facility are hoping that will change with the help of the sixth annual Dash to Defeat Dementia. The 5K and 10K run/walk takes place at Bruce’s Mill Conservation Area on Aug. 23, starting at 8:30 a.m. There will also be a kids’ dash. All money raised goes to medical research for Alzheimer’s and related dementias. Last year, more than 200 participants helped raise $25,000. “I really think Alzheimer’s and dementia needs a louder voice in the community,” she said. “Being the only home specialized for this, it’s our way of demonstrating social responsibility. It’s our way to give back,” she said. Bloomington Cove Care

Community is the only licenced long-term care facility in Ontario dedicated to dementia, according to Iwaszcsenko. It has 112 residents and is part of the Sienna Senior Living company. The race is chip timed and all participants receive a T-shirt and finisher’s medal, as well as a pancake breakfast. There will also be a silent auction, raffle and free massages. The event started in 2010 as a walk — Bloomington Cove’s Walk for Memories. There were approximately 40 walkers. A year later, about 50 people participated. In 2012, event organizers decided to add a run and in 2013 the downtown Stouffville event was moved to Bruce’s Mill. In 2014, it was rebranded as the Dash to Defeat Dementia. “My wish is to one day hear someone say I am an Alzheimer survivor. We hear that of cancer, but never hear of for Alzheimer’s,” Iwaszcsenko said. To register, go to www. events.runningroom.com/ site/?raceId=11554 or www. dashtodefeat.ca – Sandra Bolan

Acton hopes to test hip in charity game By Michael Hayakawa

mahaykawa@yrmg.com

Several current and former NHLers, along with some from the Canadian women’s national team and other celebrities will don the blades at the Stouffville Arena next Thursday. It’s all for fun and some worthy causes when the puck is dropped to start the fifth annual Hockey Night in Stouffville.

to training camps Co-hosted by Paul Calandra, MP for Oak Ridges-Markham, and Stouffville native and former NHL player and coach Keith Acton, the fun-filled evening will start at 7 p.m. Proceeds from this year’s event will go to Markham Stouffville Hospital’s child and adolescent mental health unit and the StouffvilleMarkham Girls Hockey Association. Involved with the festivities since Day 1, Acton is looking forward to being a part of this year’s event — whether he’s on skates or not after undergoing a successful hip operation earlier this year. “I’m not sure if I will play, but I’m hoping by next week to see if I can put on the skates. If I’m functional, I’ll participate,” he said. Reflecting on the event through the years, Acton noted it continues to get bigger and better. Above all, though, he was quick to point out it’s a fun-filled evening of entertainment. “The hockey arena is a great gathering place for communities across Canada and this will be a fun night in late August, a time when a lot of NHL players are squeezing in their last days of summer with their families before heading off to their training camps. “It’s great to still have them around to participate in what’s become a high-paced game that is entertaining as well.” As for the cause they are playing for, Acton said it benefits the citizens residing in the Town of Whitchurch-Stouffville and City of Markham. “We all know the significance of Markham Stouffville Hospital and the importance of it. At some point in time we are all in need of it,”

he said. Among the celebrities scheduled to participate include current professional players and Stouffville residents Will Acton, who is Keith’s oldest son, Sam Carrick (Toronto Maple Leafs) and his brother Trevor, and former Stouffville Spirit and Markham Waxer defenceman Chris Tanev (Vancouver Canucks). Those coming from Markham include Cody Hodgson (Nashville Predators), Brendan Gaunce and his older brother Cameron. Other current professional players scheduled to appear include: Richmond Hill native Julian Melchiori, Teddy Purcell (Edmonton Oilers), Derek Roy, Luke Gazdic (Edmonton) and Keswick resident Chris Tierney (San Jose Sharks). A cast of former NHLers have committed, including Stouffville native Brad May, Darcy Tucker, Bernie Nicholls and Jeff Beukeboom. Several current and former members of Canada’s women’s national team will also take to the ice, including Markham resident Cherie Piper, Tessa Bonhomme and goalkeeper Christina Kessler. Sean Pierson, a Stouffville resident and UFC fighter, and Markham’s Joe Bowen, the longtime voice of the Toronto Maple Leafs, will also be on hand for the festivities. The doors will open one hour before the opening face-off.

NHLERs suiting up Handling master of ceremony honours for this year’s game will be Stouffville resident and Hockey Night in Canada host Jeff Marek. In the first four years of the event, just over $300,000 has been raised for charity. New to this year’s event will see the on-ice participants donning vintage jerseys depicting Markham versus Stouffville. Tickets are $10 each. Sales have been brisk. The StouffvilleMarkham Girls’ Hockey Association were given $10,000 worth of tickets and all have been sold. For more information, call Calandra’s office at 905-640-1125.

KEIth ACTON

playing waiting game For Keith Acton, the upcoming National Hockey League season will be a little different from what he had been accustomed to in recent years. It’s one that will see the 57-year-old Stouffville native start the year away from the game — at least for the time being. After being relieved of his duties along with Craig Ramsay as an assistant coach by the Edmonton Oilers June 4, Acton had surgery performed on his hip. While the operation and his subsequent rehabilitation went well, Acton put his feelers out to see if his services would be required by another NHL club. Citing the timing of being relieved by the Oilers was rather late in the game and a number of other vacancies around the league had already been filled, Acton remains in Stouffville where he owns the Boston Pizza restaurant. “Things have been fairly busy,” he said of how business has been at his eatery. But the long-time former NHL player, who had stints with the Montreal Canadiens, Edmonton Oilers, Minnesota North Stars, Philadelphia Flyers, Washington Capitals and New York Islanders and other assistant coach stints with Philadelphia, New York Rangers and the Toronto Maple Leafs, remains optimistic about making a return behind the bench in the near future, as he was quick to point out the game is based on the number of victories. “I’ve been around the game long enough to know how dynamic this game is. With 30 teams (in the NHL) it borders on volatile,” he said. “There will be changes and I’ll play things for now one day at a time.”

During his storied career, Jim Veltman earned induction into the National Lacrosse League Hall of Fame in 2009 and Brampton Sports Hall of Fame in 2011. This year, the 49-year-old Stouffville resident will join the Canadian Lacrosse League Hall of Fame. Veltman is among 10 individuals along with one team to be

inducted in Nov. 14. “I really had no idea I would be inducted,” Veltman said. “I don’t even know how people get inducted if someone nominates them or if there’s a committee that does it. “I know some of the people who are currently in the Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame and to be a part of that group, it’s a great honour. “But you do feel kind of old,” he added with a laugh.

A teacher at Agincourt Collegiate in Scarborough for the past 17 years, Veltman honed his skills with the Brampton Excelsiors organization at the minor, junior and senior levels and was a perennial top scorer in the Ontario Jr. A league. He was the recipient of the Dennis MacIntosh Memorial Trophy for ability and sportsmanship and garnered MVP honours. After success in senior ranks, Veltman played 16 seasons in the

National Lacrosse League, from 1992 to 2008 with Buffalo, Ontario and Toronto, winning five titles. In 14 of his seasons, he led the league in loose balls, reaching the 2,000 career loose ball milestone. He captained the 2003 Team Canada team that won the World Indoor Lacrosse Championship. Since retiring, Veltman was involved in the CLAX winter league as commissioner and recently joined former Rock teammate

Glenn Clark as a coach with the 25 New England Black Wolves of the NLL, where he will be an assistant. “Canada is where I learned my trade and I’ve played for Canada in international competition and I’ve won four Mann Cups, which is the highest Canadian title you can win at the adult level. I’ve played out west and I’ve visited the Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame. This feels great,” he said. – Michael Hayakawa | Stouffville Sun-Tribune | Thursday, August 13, 2015

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of the beautiful and kind spirit Denise Hnilica of Markham, Ontario at the age of 89 years. Denise was the fourth child of 13 born to Angelina (Bouvier) and Louis Fournier in Ferland, Saskatchewan. Denise married Karel Hnilica in 1958 and had three daughters, Kim, Jan and Carla. No life challenge was too big for Denise. She had a 20 year career teaching French at the Toronto Separate School Board. She stayed active throughout her retirement working for various charities but especially that of Dr. Simone’s Canadian Food for Children. Denise is predeceased by her husband Karel Hnilica (1988) and five of her siblings, Germaine, Angeline, Helene, Alice and Gaston. She is survived by her three daughters, Kim Denise (Brian) Love, Jan Lise (Antonisz) Pandikiu and Carla Lynn (Andre) Matta and five of her siblings Louis, Eveline, Lorraine, Gerard and Lise. She was the loving grandmother to her ten grandchildren: Amanda, Karl and Warren Love; Renee, Steven, Jake and Carson Matta and Nikolas, Andreas and Lucas Pandikiu. She leaves many friends at the Unionville Home Society. A funeral mass was held 10:30 am Tuesday, August 11, 2015 at St. Justin Martyr’s Catholic Church, 3938 Highway 7 East, Unionville. We thank Chapel Ridge Funeral Home, for their dignity and caring attendance to her cremation. Full obituary, online condolences and donations may be made at www.chapelridgefh.com

Aged scotch fitting toast to ‘historic’ life BY SANDRA BOLAN

A

sbolan@yrmg.com

lzheimer’s stole Marion Lewis’ memories, but her research into Whitchurch-Stouffville’s past will never be forgotten. Lewis, along with Ruth Burkholder, created the historical walking tours of Stouffville back in the early 1990s. “She certainly knew the town, knew the people and we would have not done the walking tours without her,” Burkholder said. History always seemed to be a part of Marion’s life. When she went back to school in 1968 to get her teaching degree, according to her son Rod, students were more interested in hearing what life was like from her, versus learning about it from a textbook.

‘Funeral’ wishes Once Marion received her degree, she spent a couple of years teaching English to new Canadians. She then gave it up to become a stay-at-home mom. But she never lost her interest in learning. When her husband Gary, described as the love of her life, died in 1985, Marion needed something to fill her days. She saw an ad in a Stouffville newspaper for a genealogy class and took it. Among those she helped connect to other family members was Bill van der Zande, a distant cousin by marriage. Marion was a member of the Markham Berczy Settlers Association, which was formed to organize the 200th anniversary of the 67 families from Germany who

Lstories ife

settled in Markham. Historian John Lunau organized a women’s committee to research the genealogy of these families. Marion was tasked with researching the genealogy of the Eckhardt and Ulsen/Elsen families, said Lorne Smith, secretary/ treasurer of the organization. Marion went on to become a valued member of the board of directors of the Markham Berczy Settlers Association until she was incapacitated, he said. Marion grew up in a working class family with five siblings. Edna was five years younger and “I was probably the bratty little sister and had to tag along with her friends.” Although Edna hung around Marion when they were kids, the sisters weren’t close. It wasn’t until Edna was 40 and Marion hosted an 80th birthday party for their mother, did the two siblings connect. They went to Florida together and Edna often spent weekends in Stouffville with her sister. “We were the best of friends,” she said. As a child, Edna could not pronounce Marion, so she called her “Mem”. It was one of the many nicknames Marion would earn over the years, including Martha and Leapin’ Lucy. She got that last one from Rod’s high school friends, who would come over and marvel at her zip. “She kind of lived up to that with her energy and whit,” Rod said. Marion’s sense of humour could best be described as “wick-

MariOn lewis ed and acidic,” according to Rod. She was also very direct with people, was known for giving you “the look” and for dispensing an opinion when it was needed. She was the disciplinarian in the family, but it typically consisted of threatening “wait until your father gets home”, Rod recalled. Gary was the musical one in the

respected and an inspiration to her peers, Mrs. McCluskey was a tireless volunteer, quick to deflect the praise heaped on her.”

family, something he passed onto their children. But nothing rubbed off onto Marion. “The only thing she could play was the radio,” Rod said with a laugh. She did, however, pass down her sense of humour to him, he said. Cooking may also have not been her forte. Marion was known to cook something the family called “gunge”, which was a stir fry/stew concoction of meat, vegetables and gravy served on rice. “My mother knew how to burn a good piece of meat,” Rod said, adding with a laugh, “I’ve gone to the sushi side.”

Marion met Gary, most likely at high school in Stouffville during the 1940s, according to Rod. Gary was a couple of years younger than Marion. “Lifelong in love, that’s for sure because she never remarried,” Rod said. In the 1960s, they bought a 20-acre piece of land in Mount Albert where Gary built his dream home. “We used to call her a tough old bird,” Rod said of his mother’s feistiness and fierce independence. “She liked her beer now and again. A beer and cigarette was her shtick,” Rod said, adding for reasons only Marion knew, she enjoyed her Molson Export warm from the hall closet. Marion was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease in 2011. It claimed the lives of one of her brothers and a sister. “From an energetic, feisty old bird, she was like the Energizer Bunny but it stole her energy and mind,” according to Rod. Before it stole her mind, Marion made a directive to her family about her funeral. There wasn’t going to be one. Secondly, upon her death, that 1972 bottle of Dewars’ scotch she had in the house was to be “opened and drunk at my demise”. Marion died April 12 from complications of respiratory failure courtesy of Alzheimer’s disease. She was 86. On May 30, about 30 friends and family gathered, informally, to honour Marion, which was when they cracked open the 43-year-old bottle of scotch. “(It) was fine, I might add,” Rod said.
